But when several alumni are murdered, school officials decide to keep the police in the dark. They discreetly ask the school's valedictorian to solve the mystery, but he discovers that the most obvious culprit, the school's chemically imbalanced delinquent and his own nemesis, is being framed. Together, the two unlikely allies uncover a massive conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of the Stansbury administration and the U.S. government.
borrowing from a half dozen books and movies, this very lame read will probably be made into a very lame movie. my advice is to skip it; nothing original happens here and the "mystery" is a yawn.

Two stars for the idea, which was good, but none for the execution, which was poor. Characters were unevenly developed. The linear presentation did not work with an active prologue, then very little action until the end of the book.
Zero stars for the narratior, who consistently mispronounced "nuclear" and kept pausing to drink during the second half.
This title is only recommended for those obsessed with the concept of private education.

I found this book to have been intellectually engaging, but full of excitement and unexpected twists. I'm looking forward to reading (or listening to) the author's next book.
